Q: How would you recommend I prepare for my Wedding Day Hair and Makeup Session?
A: Thanks for asking a great question. I prefer to work with clean, dry hair. One day old hair is best. No flat irons and tight ponytails before Wedding day hair and makeup. Please feel free to let me know if you wish to use your own personal root and hair volumizer.
If you have oily thin hair type, it is preferred that you wash your hair on your wedding day. Makeup Prep - a clean washed face that is lightly moisturized, light eye creams and serums are welcomed. Also wearing a robe or open wide neck shirt works great when you are finished with your Hair and Makeup and you are ready to get into your Wedding dress, and this works great for getting ready photos!
Are you able to travel to me and are you able to style my friends and family ?
Absolutely I can travel and come to any desired location you choose. I'm located in San Francisco, I travel in SF and throughout the Bay Area.
I can most definitely style your friends and family, if time allows and depending how many additional services are needed and what time you will have to be at your ceremony, I'll be more than happy to style you plus any of your bridal party. If, I am not able to style due to time, I can hire additional artist to make sure everyone in your Bridal party looks and feels great while having fun!
I can't make it for a Trial Run preview because I am coming from out of state and will be arriving to SF the day before, would that be ok?
95% of all my San Francisco City Hall couples can't make it for a trial pre view because most are either driving or flying into San Francisco the day before. Therefore I ask all my Brides if they can email me a selfie and a few Inspirational Wedding day hair and makeup photos along with a few details about their natural hair type. I also ask if my Brides can send me a photo of their dress so I can see how the cut of their dress is in the front and in the back. I like to see and hear about any color palettes, themes, traditions, any hair accessories, special requests etc., that you may want to share with me. I like to be prepared so we both have a vision of how we can execute your Wedding day hair and makeup that is just perfect for you! I am confident that we will create the perfect hairstyle that is just for you on your special wedding day!
I'm a cryer, will my makeup last ?
I get this question all the time. My makeup is created to be bridal proof! Water and cry proof. I use special primers depending on which skin type you have. Before we start your makeup, I will feel and observe how your skin is feeling and looking for this day. All my Bridal foundation is customized and waterproof. Professional high grade performing products are always used along with the highest hygienic and sanitary practices with all makeup and hair services.
I always use waterproof mascara, setting powder and sprays where it's needed most to insure a natural and long lasting dance, water, cry proof makeup for one of the best days of your life!
